Question:

I am trying to find a book about Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacoloy. It is by the Authors; Doctor Leo & Devra Bastiaens. The book is titled "A Manual of Psychiatric Medications for Teenagers".

If this book is not available I would like to know if their is a similar book that may describe the positive and negative affects of various Psych druges. NEW AND OLD.

Thank you for your help.

Answer:

I am not familiar with the book you mentioned. The book I like to suggest to parents and colleagues is one by Dr. Timothy Wilens from Harvard. It`s called `Straight Talk about Psychiatric Medications for Kids` and is available for less than $12 on several internet book sites. Enjoy!
